Summary
Despite everyone's dire predictions, a little boy has faith in the carrot seed he plants.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

From celebrated children's book creators Ruth Krauss and Crockett Johnson comes the beloved classic story The Carrot Seed.

When a little boy plants a carrot seed, everyone tells him it won't grow. But when you are very young, there are some things that you just know, and the little boy knows that one day a carrot will come up. So he waters his seed, and pulls the weeds, and he waits...

This beautifully simple classic teaches the patience and technique of planting a seed and helping it grow. First published in 1945 and never out of print, the timeless combination of Ruth Krauss's simple text and Crockett Johnson's eloquent illustrations creates a triumphant and deeply satisfying story for readers of all ages.
